Why Sponsor?

CANSEC sells out annually and draws an exclusive and highly engaged audience. CANSEC's tremendous appeal is due to its strategy of maintaining a vital and focused trade show and registration base. This environment allows our members to seize the opportunity to meet face-to-face with industry and government while showcasing their innovative products and services in a professional business development setting where deals get done.
